Paris attacks fugitive Salah Abdeslam captured alive

Ten shots were reportedly heard in the Brussels suberb and grenades are also believed to have been used in a standoff with Abdeslam. The Belgian justice minister has said: “We got him.”

Belgian newspapers La Dernière Heure meanwhile report that Abdeslam and one other suspect were wounded in the operation and a third had been shot dead.

Belgium Prime Minister Charles Michel meanwhile has left the EU-Turkey migrant crisis summit amid reports the runaway has been caught. French president Francois Hollande told reporters after an EU summit today: “There is a link with the Paris attacks but for now we have to let the Belgian police do their job and complete the operation, which is ongoing.

Black-clad security forces can be seen guarding a street – rue des Quatre-Vents – in the capital and reporters at the scene describe white smoke rising from a rooftop.

It comes after Abdeslam – one of the world’s most wanted men – managed to flee a flat at the centre of a police terror raid this week.

Officials claim finger prints belonging to the fugitive, who was behind the November 13 Paris attacks, were present at the property in Brussels earlier this week.
